If we call those constructions "robots," as the gallery notes do, you'll think of something more humanoid than the programmed and beautiful mechanisms on display at Northern-Southern; so maybe just stick with "mechanisms." But if you're familiar with Steinke's devices, from having attended previous exhibitions and concerts featuring them, then you'll know to expect a couple of those aesthetically appealing, wood-and-metal, self-playing automata in the N-S space...."
“Michelle Marchesseault” at Northern-Southern
The paintings filled with nesting S-curves comes from the artist’s meditative practice, but they’re joyful in their rumination

"...3) How does “three acoustic robots singing to each other, round-robin style, mimicking a group therapy session” sound as a concept? Like it’s a sketch from SNL when SNL is actually worth watching? Like, maybe sometime after the Singularity? But, no, this is “Deliriums,” a legit art installation that's happening right now, and it’s created by that mechanical savant Matthew Steinke. The local and musically inclined tinkerer who’s delighted the city with robot-driven holiday concerts now brings us his latest exhibition – with a opening reception at Northern-Southern Gallery this Saturday night...."
